Plants that Draw Themselves

A fantastic morning getting back to nature and creating an amazing piece of art.

The purpose of this workshop is to discover delight, surprise and wonder in the forms and pigments of plants. The plants selected are those that generate spontaneously without human intervention and cultivation. Mostly we regard these as ‘weeds’ and view them negatively. By choosing to pay attention to these plants with the purpose of increasing our understanding of these life forms we are drawn to marvel at their existence.

The workshop will begin with a walk to collect the plants, noticing how and where they grow, and generally enjoying a walk through the surrounding area. We will use the plants collected to make very simple prints onto paper where the plants will ‘draw’ themselves, so no drawing or art skills are required. However, as a good amount of pressure is required to make the prints, this may not be suitable for participants with very weak wrists, hands, or arms. We will be mostly standing although chairs may be available if required. Depending on the weather we will either work on tables outside or inside.

£15 per person includes all materials and tuition.

About the Artist

Tina Scopa graduated from DJCAD in Dundee last year with a first-class honours degree in Fine Art and is now based in Kirkcaldy. Working with wild plants and soil, her work sits at the boundary between contemporary art practice and ecology. Through experimental and intuitively led techniques, primarily in printmaking, she seeks to learn more about the spontaneously generating plants that spring up all around us. The fine detail of the plant images that she produces through her printing techniques are like drawings, yet it is the plants themselves that have created these ‘drawings’. She therefore likes to think that she encourages the plants to ‘draw’ themselves. Working too with the soil in which the plants grow, she creates ‘earth paintings’ which show the rich colour and texture of the soil – she has therefore coined the term Edaphic Plant Art. Experimental ceramics, photography, film, and laser cutting also form part of her practice. http://tinascopa.wixsite.com/website
